ScaleMP to Showcase Latest Innovations at ISC13

ScaleMP, a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced it will be a Bronze Sponsor at the International Supercomputing Conference 2013 (ISC13), taking place in Leipzig, Germany from June 15-20, 2013. At the event, ScaleMP will discuss its upcoming software release vSMP Foundation 5.1.

The new release, which will be generally available this month, will feature several new enhancements:

  • AnyIO – New IO architecture that extends the VM capability with support for additional devices. This new architecture is designed to enable support of a broad range of networking adapters and accelerators. ScaleMP is working with industry leaders on the enablement of AnyIO on a wide range of devices. Availability of AnyIO-supported devices will be announced in the near future.
  • Free-download version of vSMP Foundation – A free download version of vSMP Foundation will be available by the end of June at This feature-limited, free version of vSMP Foundation provides the ability to aggregate up to eight servers to create a powerful virtual SMP system.
  • Support for the upcoming Intel processor, code-named Ivy Bridge – vSMP Foundation 5.1 will provide customers with the first many-socket Ivy Bridge system in the world.
  • Extended support for accelerators – Support for accelerators enables the use of all of the GPGPUS within single system, eliminating the need for extensive MPI programming.
  • Improved memory expansion system performance – The capability targets big-data workloads such as genome assembly, in-memory databases and analytics.
  • New licensing model for memory expansion — With this licensing model, lower price points are provided for large-memory users. Licensing is required only for active resources; extra processors in systems used for memory expansion do not require a software licenses. This reduces the acquisition costs by up to $6,400 per node.
